Throughout the years, Adonis has been taking a sabbatical from the music industry, however, he’s back with brand new single ‘My Different Lover’.
Adonis was born in Buffalo, New York, but shortly moved to California where he found his love for music, performing in bands and writing music while in Junior high. Early influences include Motown, expanding over the years to progressing to playing Bass guitar, which he received at the age of 12.
After realising he wanted to study and produce records as well write and perform, he went on to study music theory, electronic music, and sound recording at California State University at Northridge.
After learning and practising his skill and craft, he then went on years of touring with a number of different bands including Alphonse Mouzon, Dee Dee Bridgewater, The Miracles, Finis Henderson, and Richard Pryor.
Adonis had met Earth, Wind, & Fire Guitarist Al McKay, who was working on new solo material, and had Adonis as one of the members. A demo was made, however no record deals came to fruition.
However Adonis had used this experience to push himself further, “Working with Al Mckay motivated me to fine tune my writing skills”. Throughout the years has worked with musicians and has make appearances playing bass and doing backing vocals for the likes of Glenn Jones, Finis Henderson and Garry Glenn.
After this success, he then went into a career of business and professional investing. Taking 19 years away from music, Adonis honed his craft as a Mortgage Broker, Real Estate Investor and Investor Relations Manager in facilitating the sale of privately held stock for companies.
He is now ready for a return, with powerful, yet delicately enlightening ‘My Different Lover’ which is out on October 26th.
